By the numbers

  • More than 50 free classes a week
  • 65 pieces of cardio equipment including treadmills, ellipticals, rowers, upright and recumbent bikes
  • More than 60 hours of open gym time a week. At nearly 7,400 square feet, the gym is so large that you can play pickleball, volleyball and basketball at the same time.
  • It takes 20,000 gallons of water to fill the pool. With nearly 10 hours of open swim time a day, the pool features 4 swim lanes, a therapy area, and zero depth entry. One of the spray features is a 15 ft. x 5 ft. frog, which was so large that the builders had to remove a window to place it in the facility.
  • 12 pieces of adaptive or adapt-able cardio strength equipment
  • 11 laps on the indoor track make a mile.
  • SALUTE, an 8-foot sculpture featuring 5 service men and women greets guests at the entrance
  • Up to 2 hours of free child care each day for members
  • Approximately 33 contractors were used to build OrthoIndy Foundation YMCA.
